Yesterday, I warned you that Federal Judge (and Clinton appointee) Ricardo Urbina was leaning toward releasing Muslim terrorists from Guantanamo Bay onto our shores.
And as outrageous and absurd as it seems, today Judge Urbina issued the order. Welcome Al-Qaeda’s Uighur (Chinese Muslims) terrorists from Guantanamo Bay to our nation’s capital, where they will now live. No joke. This preposterous decision is serious . . . very serious:
A federal judge ordered the Bush administration Tuesday to immediately release a small group of Chinese Muslims from Guantanamo Bay into the United States.
Fed Judge Ricardo Urbina Frees Qaeda Terrorists Into U.S.: HE . . .
HEARTS Them . . .
In a landmark decision, U.S. District Judge Ricardo M. Urbina said it would be wrong for the Bush administration to continue holding the detainees, known as Uighurs, since they are no longer considered enemy combatants.
The Uighurs have been in custody for almost seven years and have been cleared for release since 2004, but the government has not been able to find a country willing to take them in. . . .
Urbina called the detention unlawful saying the Constitution prohibits indefinite imprisonment without charges.
The Uighurs have been at Guantanamo Bay, a naval prison in Cuba, since the U.S. military took custody of them in Pakistan and Afghanistan in 2001. Efforts by the Bush administration to find a home for the detainees has been complicated by fears in many countries of diplomatic reprisals by China. . . .
On Tuesday, the Beijing government demanded that all Uighurs held at Guantanamo be repatriated to China.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said the Uighurs are suspected of being members of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement, which the United States lists as a terrorist organization.
Just so you know, Joe Biden voted to confirm this outrageous judge. I doubt Sarah Palin would ever appoint a choice like this. Since Biden brags that he takes Amtrak from DC to Delaware every night, one wonders what he thinks about his new Al-Qaeda terrorist neighbors in DC joining him on the train ride, courtesy of a judge he supported.
As Brett Winterble of Covert Radio Show points out, Hizzoner Urbina has a history of issuing loony decisions in favor of Islamic terrorists out to destroy America:
He made it easier for Islamist-funded lawyers to visit Gitmo terrorists.
He also tried to stop the U.S. government from handing over Jordanian Sunni Muslim terrorist Shawqi Omar to Iraqi authorities, after he was caught in terrorist activity in Iraq.
Remember, this is Joe Biden’s Judge.
Don’t bet on this being an issue in tonight’s McCain-Obama debate, though. No-one seems to care about America’s national security . . . until it’s too late.
